California Prop 65

WARNING: Products we sell may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Auto and Art, LLC does not manufacture, modify, or take possession of any products. The component contents of the products are unknown to Auto and Art, LLC., but may contain components that could be injurious to your health or safety. California requires us to place the following warning on our website and on the products delivered to you in California. California residents are encouraged to visit www.p65warnings.ca.gov for further information.

Beginning in early 2014 we began to include the following warning on our products delivered to customers in California:

 

WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

This warning is part of our effort to comply with the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (known as "Proposition 65"). The warning does not mean that our products will necessarily cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. While we believe our products are not harmful when used as designed, and we rely on our suppliers to help with this effort, we also provide these warnings to comply with Proposition 65.

What is Proposition 65?

Proposition 65 is a far-reaching law and applies to any company that operates in California, sells products in California, or manufactures products that may be sold in or brought into California. Proposition 65 requires warnings to accompany any product that contains or may contain any of 800-plus chemicals appearing on the list administered by California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), a part of the California Environmental Protection Agency. The list includes naturally occurring and man-made chemicals. Many of the chemicals listed under Proposition 65 have been routinely used in everyday consumer items like (thermoplastic elastomer coated) wires, cables, power cords, plugs and connectors for years without documented harm. On rare occasions, listed chemicals are even "delisted."

 

Why has Auto and Art decided to provide a warning?

 

Auto and Art, LLC does not manufacture, modify, or take possession of any products. The component contents of the products are unknown to Auto and Art, LLC., but may contain components that could be injurious to your health or safety. California requires us to place the following warning on our website and on the products delivered to you in California.

 

Proposition 65 imposes strict penalties for noncompliance. While California establishes "safe harbor numbers" for listed chemicals, the costs of individually testing products that Auto and Art sells and distributes is prohibitive (particularly when the list of chemicals is so expansive and subject to change on an annual basis).

As there is no penalty for providing an unnecessary warning, Auto and Art (like some other companies doing business in California) decided to provide the Proposition 65 notice out of an abundance of caution.
